    PHP is easier to learn than Perl, though messier to write large programs in, and the following has always sufficed for PHP language questions:

    I use Perl for heavy algorithms work (high work, low number of accesses) and PHP for most of my web apps (low work, high number of accesses), since I don't have access to mod_perl.

      That's probably the only good thing of PHP, the online documentation and handy lookup (, but luckilly good monk Juerd provides us that for Perl too on his site:


      All code is usually tested, but rarely trusted.
